no. Crawford was equipped as well as Camp David, not Hawaii or MV. And I have been around for a while and remember that 'working from home', whether Bush from Crawford or Jimmy from Plains was no big deal. Most presidents have also entertained at their homes, as Bush did in Crawford. One time set-up for all the security, less Secret Service required, etc...
The rub is this president seems not to care about the expenses, or the image, of his own indulgence. Especially at a time when we have record deficit spending. This just adds to that deficit.
Even members of his own party are not happy, hence the spin machine is in full force trying to deflect attention. Let them eat cake. Let us count the votes come November.
